General municipal elections are held on a fixed date on the first Sunday of November every four years. But municipal by-elections may be held when a councillor or mayor position becomes vacant.
The next municipal by-elections will be held on March 3, 2024.
The next general elections will be held on November 2, 2025, simultaneously throughout Quebec. The population of Ormstown will then have to elect a mayor and six municipal councillors.
The municipal council
At the heart of the municipal democracy, the council is composed of 7 elected officials, including 6 councilors and a mayor. All of the seats on council are elected by the entirety of the population, as the town is not divided into wards.
The council has the duty to see to the quality of life in the community. Councilors, by way of adopting bylaws and resolutions, must act in the interest of the citizens that they represent.
